BOOK TRAVELING THURSDAYS

I have recently come across a Goodreads Group called Book Traveling Thursdays. The concept of this is that every Thursday there is a theme and the bloggers who participate in this group take that theme and pick a book that they associate with the theme. From this the bloggers find and post different covers of the book they have chosen.

If you wish to know more or join in please feel free to have a look at their Goodreads Page.

The theme for this week was:

A BOOK WITH A STRONG FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER

This theme is in honour of International Womens Day.

THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS BY RAE CARSON

Elisa is a character who is quietly powerful and is believable in her strength. She experiences fear often and even in these times she still perseveres for what is right.

FAVOURITE COVERS:

 

 

  1. The first cover is the French edition. From the skin tone, to the to the Godstone in her navel to the fact that she does not seem to be a petite build, it all seems to fit.
  2. This is the edition I read. It is the original US edition. I like how Elisa is just a figure in the Godstone and the main elements are the Godstone and the text.
  3. The final cover is another French edition. The girl is absolutely stunning on this cover and the shades of blue are beautiful. Even though this is not how I pictured Elisa I cannot help but love this cover.

LEAST FAVOURITE COVERS:

 

  1. The first cover is the German edition of this book. Other than the Godstone I am unsure what an Arabian scene or the fire has to do with the events of the book.

2. The second cover is the Italian edition. I don’t mind it, but this girl is not what I think Elisa is described as in the book.

3. The third cover is the Turkish edition. This is a Spanish-esque society…. there are no pale redheads… thats all I have to say.

4. The final cover is the Japanese edition. It is pretty enough but seems like it would be more suited for an Arabian type book.
